I am a little confused, the A73001 Club Kit gives three options :arrow:
Image
The Royal Navy one is easy to spot :dummy: but the box has an all-over green one with ROYAL AIR FORCE lettering as option D: RAF Wittering, Cambridgeshire during the early 1990s
It has a green & black (disruptive camouflage) with a yellow triangle on the cab as option E: RAF Guttersloh, Germany during late 1980s.
I think these are correct, but the flyer inside says the camo one is option D and the green one option E :?
Can anyone shed any light on the subject :help:

Looking at this ATF Link A,B and C are for the Landrover, D is the camouflaged refuler option, E is the green option and F is the yellow RN option. But I am not sure what the question was TBH :fear:

Yes Chris - the box says Green is D and the instructions say it is E
whereas the box says Camo is E and the instructions say it is D :scratch:
So is the Camo Guttersloh and green Wittering or the other way round :shrug:

I would hedge my bets that the camouflaged refueller is from RAF Guttersloh (front line station during the cold war), as it has formation signs (triangle on door) and lacks the hi-viz yellow RAF markings in preparation of the Russian hoards crossing the Rhine...but that's my guess :wink:

This doesn't help answer the question, but the individual Airfix boxing of this is no help.
It has three colour schemes linked to registration plates. The Airfix instructions look like photocopies of the original JB instructions
Just saying in case anyone thinks the individual kit might help

~~ just thought of somat; at least one of the Airfix magazines in the '70s had the refueller on the front cover [with a Harrier afair] and noted it was RAF Germany [article on RAFG was inside]
